Daugherty Motorsports Fork Cartridge Kits?

I just noticed that Daugherty just started making a front fork 'cartridge kit' for the 919.

Anyone have any experience with this or comments?

I have his kit on the the blackbird. So much smoother than stock, it takes out the harshness when riding on old blacktop roads. Easy to install and adjust.

It can take Jamie some time to reply to emails, he is pretty busy i think.

This looks to be a very intriguing way to upgrade a pre 04 919 set of forks for a very good price

Very interesting comments within re SKF:
Got seals? Replacing your fork seals during a revalve is always a good idea. Don't settle for the sub-standard quality of bargain fork seals. For years I preached that only Honda OEM seals were worth putting into forks - all others were junk. Well, that's been true.... until now. The SKF brand has been highly regarded in commercial and industrial applications and finally they have released parts for motorcycle applications. These seals have the same quality, durability, and wear resistance of Honda seals with much less friction. Looking for that little bit extra? These might be just what you are looking for!
CAUTION: there is more to picking out seals on your own, than just using the basic sizing and sealing, so it would be nice to find out what SKF P/N he is using.

From the SKF WEbsite, noting I could not find selection info:
Fork seals for motorcycles and bicycles
Fork seal for motorcycles and bicycles
The feel of riding and durability are two decisive factors when designing seals for forks in motorcycles and bicycles. Especially in off-road applications, such as enduro or motocross, the requirements on the sealing are very demanding.

SKF has developed a range of seals with this in mind. Solutions are available for both off-road and on highway use. For motorcycles, the seals come in pairs with a separate oil seal and dirt wiper seal tuned to each other to give low friction for the best riding experience, as well as long life. For bicycles the two seals can be combined into a single unit.


Features

An oil seal and a wiper seal to minimize contamination reaching the oil seal
Specially developed NBR elastomer with lower friction characteristics
Wiper seal with optional dual lip design for high contamination situations
New oil seal lip geometry specific to fork seals


Benefits

Increased life and performance
Enhanced water and dirt protection capability
Reduced and constant friction over the life of seal
Much improved ride comfort
Compatibility with a wide range of OE and aftermarket oils
Reduced wear and air suction

hmmm very interesting. seems like a decent setup. I'm also kinda interested in the cbr600F4 rear shock they offer. seems like a decent low cost upgrade. I might try and save up and get the whole DMr setup for my '03 niner

There are quite a few riders on the cbrxx forum that have gotten the DMr fork kit and also the 954rr rear shock upgrade for the blackbird. Nothing but positive reviews regarding the ride.
